Hi, Kristy in the Rada kitchen. Today I’m bringing a recipe to you from our 101 Recipes with Chocolate recipe book. If you’re a chocolate lover, you’ll love this recipe book. It has everything from cookies and bars and beverages and desserts. Today I’m going to make luscious caramel brownies.
You’ll need a 14 ounce package of caramels. Make sure you unwrap them. Put those in a heavy, large saucepan. And to that we’re going to add 1/3 cup evaporated milk. We’re going to go to the stovetop and melt those.

Now, over low heat, I’m just going to stir these caramels now that they’re melted with the evaporated milk. You just want to keep stirring the caramels and milk as they melt. I like using this Rada Non-Scratch Spoon. As you can see, it scrapes the bottom of the pan to keep it from burning. You just want to keep stirring it. It has a nice, sturdy handle for thick, heavy mixtures. The best part is if you’re using a non-stick pan it won’t scratch that pan. It scrapes that bottom really nice and gets into those edges. It won’t be too much longer now.

Now, these brownies, I’m going to take about a cup of chopped walnuts. I like to get out my Rada Food Chopper and chop those. This is a straight-edged one that works great. We also have a serrated-edge model. They cut through celery, onions, potatoes, boiled eggs. They work great and are easy to clean up. You want to get ready a 9” by 13” pan. You will want to preseason it. We’re using Rada stoneware, so we don’t need to preseason it.

In a large bowl, we’re going to take 18.2 oz German chocolate cake mix. Then we’re going to take ½ cup melted butter and another 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Just going to mix that well. Now we’re going to stir our chopped nuts into the mixture. Then you’ll want to divide this in half. We’re going to pack half of this into our 9” x 13” pan. So now we have this all pressed into our pan. We’re going to place it into our oven that we heated to 350 degrees. And we’re going to bake it for 6 minutes.

After 6 minutes, I’ve taken that out of the oven. We’re going to drizzle our caramel over that. Make sure you get all the corners. On top of that corner we’re going to sprinkle a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. And then we’re just going to crumble the other half of that cake mix over that. What’s going to happen is when it cooks it’s going to goo up through these pieces and it’s going to be outstanding. It’s so tasty. Now we’re going to put this back in the oven for another 20 minutes.

After the brownies have cooled, they’re ready to serve. That’s one of the recipes in our 101 Recipes with Chocolate cookbook.
